Michelle Obama Official Portrait 2013 features the “Mid-Life Crisis Bangs”

Michelle Obama has now confessed WHY she decided to get bangs in a February 19, 2013,  interview with Rachel Ray.  Michelle told Rachel:

“This is my mid-life crisis, the bangs. I couldn’t get a sports car. They won’t let me bungee jump. So instead, I cut my bangs!”

If you remember we blogged about Michelle’s new bangs in our post entitled Hairstyles for Women over 45: Michelle Obama Bangs, How Tos.  The bangs, which have taken on a life on their own appeared right before the Inauguration and her 49th birthday.

This 2013 Photo was released today, February 20, 2013, via official White House sources including via the White House Flicker and the @Flotus twitter feed.  I am quite sure that Michelle Obama will draw widespread praise and criticism as she usually does.  In 2009, the Michelle Obama Official Portrait  “arm” picture drew criticism as some thought Michelle’s well toned arms were too prominently featured.

I posted this article today before critiques were out on the 2013 photo.  I personally like it very much.  I think it is understated, friendly, ladylike and modern.

What do you think of the 2013 photo?  Please comment below!

  1. I have to agree with everyone else, the new look is great, classy and perfect for the first lady.

  2. i love them both. i like that they are different styles completely: one is close up and one not, different hairstyles…

  3. She always looks fabulous. But I do love it when she shows off the “guns”.

  4. I like that the 2013 portrait looks young and approachable, but I like her 2009 one better.
